Pakistan will have to pay for its misadventures, warns Nirmala Sitharaman

We will be providing evidence to prove that the handlers are back in Pakistan and they are the mastermind, influencing all this.

General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Northern Command, Lt Gen D Anbu also said that over three times more casualties had been inflicted on the adversary a year ago.

The February 10 terrorist attack on the army camp in Sunjuwan, Jammu, which was claimed by Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba militant group, led to the death of 5 soldiers and a father of one of the soldiers, in one of the worst attacks in months.

"Pakistan has been violating ceasefire to help infiltrators".

She added, "Giving the evidences to Pakistan will be a continuous process".

A DAY after Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti called for dialogue with Pakistan to end the bloodshed in the State, the BJP on Tuesday said talks were not suitable at a time when the neighbouring country was "supporting" militant attacks. The police said terrorists of Jaish-e Mohammad were involved, who were killed after a almost 36-hour operation.

"Infiltration does take place. The incident has shown that militants are able to carry out attacks anywhere in Jammu with support of OGWs", he added. The encounter was still on, a CRPF official said this morning.

"Both militants were killed during a 24 hour long gunbattle".

They can not get Jammu and Kashmir by sponsoring terrorism.

Responding to a question regarding the recent comments of India's defence minister, he rejected the Indian allegations and said that now familiar Indian tendency of apportioning blame to Pakistan, without a shred of evidence, was regrettable.

"Our basic problem has not been resolved".

The Defence Minister, who arrived in Jammu on Monday to meet the injured soldiers and civilians and assess the security situation, in her address to the media said, "The Ministry of Defence will stand by the Army".

Experts say the violence could escalate in the days ahead unless the governments of India and Pakistan take "urgent measures".

"Complicating the Afghanistan situation is our assessment that Pakistan-based militant groups continue to take advantage of their safe haven to conduct attacks in India and Afghanistan, including United States interests therein", Coats said. The political atmosphere in Kashmir has already been vitiated after the breakdown in the talks between New Delhi and Hurriyat.
